Best politician story ever. Instead of the usual, boring "misspoke," she misfingered.

An American supermarket chain however, received many protests about how scandalous it is to show a gay couple with a baby so they opted for censorship:

I was all because that magazine cover has been out for a while and I hadn't heard about any big flap over it. It's in my grocery store too. So, I looked it up. It's a grocery store in Arkansas where store managers can make the decision about that to put that shield on, and then when some store managers did, the store central office got flooded with complaints about the covering up. So they told the managers they couldn't cover the magazine. Censorship of censorship??
